Understanding Society – The psychodynamic impact and implications of COVID 19 on Black and Minority Ethnic people
£0.00 – £9.00
Speakers: Augustine Sagoe and Leslie Brissett
Date: 17th June 2020, 5.30pm-7.30pm BST
Venue: Online via Zoom
The spotlight has been on racism recently. The death of George Floyd at the hands of the Minneapolis police is sparking widespread #BlackLivesMatter protests. In the UK, Public Health England’s recent report on Covid-19 shows a disproportionately large number of deaths and hospital admissions for people from black and minority-ethnic communities.
This event will provide an opportunity to hear the experiences of black and minority-ethnic people. It will consist of:
- Sharing of experiences
- Discussion in small groups
- Hypothesis formation
- Where do we go from here?
Augustine Sagoe is a Director / Trustee of OPUS, Director GRConsultancy and Former Executive Director of Nursing, Governance and Social care in the NHS
